Quiet Conversations

How strange that I posted a 100 word poem on my blog Someday Somewhere just yesterday. And it fits today's prompt at Verse First .

Your task for this week's Verse First is to write succinctly and boldly about a personal experience. As you do so, rest assured that your readers will share some common ground. Be aware that the writing heals you and the reading heals others.  The only rule: No more than 100 words. Succinct. Bold. GO!

So I share it again ...

Each morning I waited as I stood in line.
I loved those moments when his eyes met mine.
No words needed just the beat of hearts.

His time on earth was over, so he left for his home in the sky.
Now I lie alone in the darkness and as I listen to the sounds of silence, I close my eyes.
No words needed just connections through thin veils.

And then I pray to the Heavens with devotion and faith.
And in my dreams He comes to me to comfort and love.
No words needed just the fusion of souls.

  4. This is very touching, Suzy. The veil between life and death is sometimes very thin. And it is good that you feel Him comfort you in dreams.
